Sungrak Megachurch Sings The Praises For SSL Mixing Consoles In Korea

Solid State Logic (SSL) has announced that Sungrak Church of Korea has chosen SSL digital audio consoles to spread the word in the expanding religious broadcasting market.
Sungrak, one of the world's true 'megachurches' with some 150,000 members and 220 branch and affiliate churches around the globe, is using the SSL C200 HD desk to feed a Meyer PA system for front of house audio while an SSL C300 HD console handles Sungrak's extensive broadcast commitments.
The 48 channel C200 HD console is quite literally at the heart of Sungrak Church operations. Centrally located on the main balcony of the 2,500 sq m church, the C200 HD is perfectly positioned to handle both traditional Front Of House and live recording duties, and equipped with SSL's renowned DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) control capability.
This allows quick and efficient control of the Pro Tools rig that Sungrak uses for recording church services, as all the transport functions are under fingertip control while the Pro Tools faders are automatically mapped onto console faders.
Sungrak's Sunday services are broadcast live via satellite and internet streaming, reaching not only church members, but also millions of other interested viewers worldwide generating a requirement for complex multi-format, multi-language content delivery.
Located in the sumptuous production control room at the top of Sungrak's huge building, the C300 HD accommodates 24 channel strips and some 192 channels of digital signal processing (DSP) within a 1.6m wide frame.
The multi-format C300 HD is a big console in a compact footprint and crucial to Sungrak Church's ambitious production and broadcast operations, providing simultaneous processing and mixing, all within the console. Rapid access and overview of complex mixes is made possible by user-customised channel layouts, 7.1 surround input channels, advanced parameter linking and an innovative scroll function that permits access to hundreds of signal paths from as few as eight faders.
Some 48 remote microphone inputs housed in two C-SB Remote Stageboxes located on the Church stage are shared between the C200 HD Front of House position and the C300 HD.
Tim Harrison, Solid State Logic Area Sales Manager, said: "It has been reported that five of the world's 10 largest megachurches are in South Korea, with total broadcast figures in the millions.
"As one of the world's largest, Sungrak Church is a physically impressive facility inside and out, and the SSL consoles will be major contributors to improving the sonic fidelity and mixing capabilities for their global production operations."
The project system and design and console installation was expertly supervised by Technical Director Jeehan Choi together with President Je Ho Shin and other staff at HanSeo Broadcast and Music Tech, the exclusive distributor for SSL consoles in Korea.
Choi said: "We are delighted that Sungrak had faith in our ability to meet the complex needs of a massive undertaking in a timely and cost-effective manner."
